Mommy T's adventures; bringing up Baby T

A Waltz in the Mountains #FridayFotoFiction

HE was coming for her. He had left all the telltale signs behind.

Simran shuddered. She felt like she heard his heavy breathing. But it was only the AC. She ran her fingers through the fur-lined coats on the rack and wondered if it was cold in Switzerland this year.

She was trapped now and there was no hiding from HIM. If only Arjun had made an attempt to read the signs. She could have been saved.

Simran’s eyes constantly darted to the door. What if he came in here right now? Suddenly her sight fell on the mirror. It was HIM. He ran towards her and grabbed her from the back.

He kissed her neck, just like he had all those years ago.

It still felt the same. “Lets go” he said, “Our flight leaves in 4 hours. The mountains of Zurich await.”

Simran picked up her suitcase, “Goodbye Arjun. Goodbye, boring marriage.”
